I stayed in the hotel for a business trip. The location is perfect, quite street but central, within easy reach of all sights and cheap taxis to business centres that are not in the city centre. Staff was extremely friendly and accommodating to my requests, room in the wing next to the hotel was great size and modern. The lobby... More

I visited this hotel for a business meeting. The architecture is like a labyrinth. It seems to have different wings and different elevators, since the hotel is based in two different buildings. The reception is very helpful. I found breakfast ok, but my colleague had diaroia. Don't it in the restaurant boufet cause they serve yesterday's.

The hotel is good though unimpressive. The hotel is just off a major street and within walking distance to all attractions. The rooms are simply furnished. A big plus is the abundant breakfast. A negative is the very weak wifi signal.

Very convenient hotel on a small and quiet street. However, very centralized and in a few minutes walking distance to central sites. Very easy to go around the main attractions of Sofia. Also not far from the airport and the hotel has a shuttle if you need one to and from the airport.

Let me start by saying the staff are really friendly and helpful, and the location is great easy for walkers, and taxis are extremely inexpensive for everyone else. The room was a little subpar/dated, but it is totally adequate. It was my first time in Bulgaria, so perhaps this is typical or maybe better than average accommodation by Sofia standards
